Spicy Middle Eastern Stir Fry.........(Kilayah)

“This is a recipe for a basic middle eastern stir fry, which uses alot of tomatoes as its base. This usually is served with a side of rice or middle eastern bread for dipping. I usually make this dish as a dinner, but sometimes even as a one of my breakfast dishes. This dish is common throught the middle east, but referred to differently such as Alayeh, Ghalabah e.t.c. and recipe varies. You can add diced tender beef or lamb, carots, green peppers e.t.c. This is how we like it in our house.”

  1. Place oil in a nonstick frying pan under high heat. Once the oil is very hot add the onions in.Stir the onions and let cook for about 2 minutes.
  2. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Stir. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes. Stir again, make sure you stir frequently to avoid sticking. Stir fry with be thick. If you feel it is too thick, add just a tiny bit of water. I usually dont have to, and by adding the water, it dilutes the flavor a bit.Place on medium heat.Let cook until the tomatoes have cooked down. Remove from heat. Enjoy!
